Item description for Little Smudge by Lionel Le Neouanic...

Hello---can I play with you? For a child, the entire world hangs on the answer to that question. But what happens if the response is NO?
Lonely Little Smudge is searching everywhere for a friend---and when it sees a group of shapes playing together it thinks the wish has come true. But the colorful squares, triangles, diamonds, and circles all think Smudge is just too different...until it shows them all the amazing shapes it can form, and how magical its difference can be.
With bold, bright, and always surprising images---which range from abstract to cubist---this very special picture book not only celebrates the power of the individual but provides an appealing introduction to modern art.

Reviews - What do customers think about Little Smudge?

Overcoming Obsticles  Mar 10, 2008
My daughter loves this book. She is only 2 years of age and doesn't understand just yet what it is like to be unlike others and not excepted for who she is. she does understand that the characters in this book work out their differences because the one who is not liked has a special talent and is willing to share it with his taunters. I feel this book prepares parents as well as children for the inevitable...the school bully. There is a bully or 2 or 3 in every school and giving a child coping skills is the best thing a parent can do. We can't protect our children from harsh words and dislike, but we can teach them how to over come. This book also teaches that it hurts to say unkind words to others. So my hope is that more parents will read this book to their children to teach them not to hurt others, as well as how to handle the hurt if it happens to them.
Wonderful Book  Mar 27, 2007
My son loves this book (age 2). He loves drawing his own version of smudge! The story is wonderful and the illustration is imaginitive. While there is some negative language and namecalling, I believe this provides a teaching opportunity for parents.
Like it but a few concerns  Feb 27, 2007
I bought this book for my 3 year old son and it seemed to be the perfect book for an active 3 year old who is often anxious to get to the end of the book. He loved the illustration and the story engaged him.

But the main issue I have with this book is the NEGATIVE language used.
You are so ugly! You are hopeless! ...these phrases are from the book and is language in my opinion that should never be in children's books.

When I first read those words in Little Smudge it was hard to gut feeling was this is not nice... but I dismissed it as I thought well maybe I am being over-protective it must be okay ... I am reading a childrens book geared towards 3-4 year olds as the sign said in Barnes and Nobel)
But then a few days later my son started to use the word ugly to describe his feelings towards others ... he would say "you are not my friend you are ugly". or I don't like you you are ugly. These words are hurtfuly and I am so upset that the context was introduced to my son in a book that I read to him at bed time. The author could have chosen other words to get his point across.
